UL-Lafayette seeking new defensive coordinator

LAFAYETTE (AP) — Louisiana-Lafayette football coach Mark Hudspeth says he's seeking a replacement for defensive coordinator

Greg Stewart.

Hudspeth said Wednesday that Stewart will

not return to the Ragin' Cajuns' coaching staff for the 2013 season. He

did not

indicate what sparked the coaching move but thanked Stewart for

his contributions that led to the team's 18 wins, including

a pair of New Orleans Bowl titles over the last two years.

Stewart joined Louisiana-Lafayette's program in 2011 when Hudspeth was named head coach. He previously served as an assistant

coach at Jacksonville State for 18 seasons.

A search for Stewart's successor is underway.
